45th Parallel Film Fest is an annual celebration of cinema that brings awareness to the importance of local and accessible media for all individuals to have their voices heard. Our film festival (formerly Community Media Film Fest) is an opportunity for YOU to gain recognition in YOUR community for exceptional local media and video production.

Are you an Oregon resident or non-profit with a non-commercial program you take pride in? We want to see it! Our goal is to celebrate creativity, skill, and culture within Oregon.

CCTV will grant awards in twelve categories, judged by a panel of Oregon residents with experience in video production. Other awards will be granted in overall excellence and people's choice. Winners will be presented with a trophy for their outstanding video, awarded on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Salem Cinema in downtown Salem, Oregon.
